#' @title plotExpr Function to generate a boxplot (expression) for a
#' SummarizedExperiment object based on the replicate data.
#' @description This function generates a boxplot of FPKM expression
#' values from the supplied object. FPKM values are averaged
#' across replicates and partitioned among groups of loci as specified
#' in a selected column from the annotation slot of the provided
#' object.
#' @usage plotExpr(se, groupings= NULL, mode_mean=TRUE,
#' treatment=levels(colData(se)$Treatment),
#' LOG2=TRUE, clusterby_grouping=TRUE, ...)
#' @param se A SummarizedExp object containing FPKM values and at least
#' one annotation column.
#' @param groupings Specifies which column in the dataframe of the
#' annotation slot that will be used to group loci in the boxplot.
#' Can provide either a character value matching the column name,
#' or a single numerical value used as an index of dataframe columns.
#' @param mode_mean Logical. If TRUE then FPKM values are averaged by
#' mean across replicates within treatment. If FALSE, values are
#' averaged by median.
#' @param treatment A character vector indicating which treatments
#' (i.e. levels in the replicates slot vector) will be plotted.
#' Order matters, and controls the ordering of treatments represented
#' in the boxplot.
#' @param LOG2 Logical. If TRUE then average FPKM values are Log2
#' transformed.
#' @param clusterby_grouping Logical. If TRUE then boxplots are arranged
#' by locus annotation grouping. If FALSE they are arranged by treatment
#' levels, as indicated in the treatment argument.
#' @param ... Additional named arguments and graphical parameters passed
#' to the boxplot function.
#' @details This function generates boxplots to visualize the distribution
#' of FPKM expression values provided in an object, arranged by
#' selected treatments and locus annotations. FPKM values are averaged
#' (mean or median) within selected treatments, to provide a single
#' expression value per locus per treatment. Loci are partitioned
#' into groupings based on a specified column in the dataframe of
#' annotations slot of the object. Thus a box is drawn for
#' each grouping of loci for each treatment indicated. Desired treatments
#' and their ordering are specified by the treatment argument. Groupings
#' are arranged by sort order of the annotation column indicated, and can
#' thus be controlled by providing a factor with a pre-specified level order.
#' By default (clusterby_grouping = TRUE), boxes are arranged by annotation
#' group first, and then by treatment, but setting this option to FALSE
#' arranges boxes by treatment and then annotation group. This function uses
#' the base graphics boxplot function to generate the plot, so can accept
#' all relevant graphical arguments for customizing the figure;
#' see boxplot for details.
#' @examples
#' data(hmel.se)
#' plotExpr(se, groupings = "annotation.ZA", treatment = 'Male' )
#' @return Returns an invisible data frame containing values
#' and labels used to generate the figure.
